There’s no doubt moms should be rewarded all year long, but Mother’s Day is tailor made for toasting. Whether your mother favors the finer things in life or just wants to spend the day outside, there’s a special experience on OpenTable that’s just right for her. Here are five exciting ways to celebrate Mother’s Day in the Magic City.
For the mom who wants to be outside: CH’I
If the mom in your life adores dining al fresco, the CH’I’s Bubble Brunch in the Garden is right up her alley. The open-air terrace at this Chino-Latino restaurant in Brickell is ideal for basking in Miami’s wonderful weather while taking in the views of the vibrant cityscape. Whether at a table or a first-come, first-serve cabana, mom and co. can enjoy bottomless bubbles for $35 per person while feasting on dishes such as fried chicken and waffles, Peking duck crepes, peanut-crusted French toast, and bocadito Chinese donuts.
For the mom who loves the classics: La Gourmandise St. Regis
Got a mom who lives for the classics—read: can’t stop binge-watching Bridgerton? Treat her to an indulgent afternoon at La Gourmandise at St. Regis Bal Harbour for a traditional high tea experience. Let mom take in the ocean views as she savors a cup or two of afternoon tea, paired with finger sandwiches and sweet treats served on a handcrafted birdcage display. If you’re feeling extra fancy or want to stretch the experience, add Champagne service to the mix. Note: reservations are required a minimum of 24 hours in advance.
For the mom who is all about the food: Stubborn Seed
Top Chef winner Jeremy Ford’s Stubborn Seed is for the mom obsessed with cooking shows. It’s where she can tuck into one of Miami’s best chef’s tasting menus, available for $150 per person, featuring rich seasonal dishes designed to take taste buds on an edible rollercoaster. Though the menu at this South Beach spot changes constantly, count on everything being perfectly on point, from the bread service—think cacio e pepe puffs—to veggies, proteins, and almost-too-pretty-to-eat desserts.
For the mom who likes to feel fancy: Lumar Yacht Experience
Those looking to treat mom to the ultimate luxe escape should opt for the Lumar Yacht Experience. Spend the day on a stylishly renovated 75-foot Ferretti yacht cruising around Miami. Make it a family affair—there’s room for up to 13 guests; this yacht features a barbecue area on its top deck, a swim platform, and multiple sunbathing spots. Bring your own food and drinks or have the entire thing catered, depending on how you want to customize the day for mom. For those who really want to up the ante, there are add-ons such as bartender service, jet skiing, or even a massage therapist to enhance the special day.
For the mom who paints the town: Nikki Beach
Situated on the sand in Miami’s prestigious South of Fifth neighborhood, Nikki Beach is where to take the mom who loves the bon vivant lifestyle. The Sunday Brunch at Nikki Beach is larger than life—just like this mom. For $75 per guest, enjoy a succession of delicious counters that churn out omelets, crepes, paella, sushi, and pasta—there’s even a carving station and another devoted exclusively to dessert. Surrounded by positive vibes, live music, and an ocean breeze, it’s the perfect spot to sip on a spritz with your toes in the sand for an unforgettable day with family and friends.
